Hooker ‘knifed punter who re­fused her sex de­mands’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PROS­TI­TUTE re­peat­edly knifed a would-be punter af­ter he re­fused to have sex with her for money, the Old Bai­ley heard.

Bar­bara Alexis, 56, lured Ab­di­welli Has­san to her home on the prom­ise of meet­ing an es­cort called San­dra.

She was nowhere to be seen when he ar­rived with friend An­drew McGrath in tow – but Alexis told him he could pay for sex with her.

When he re­buffed her, she robbed him at knife­point of £60 in cash, it is al­leged.

He tried to dis­arm her but was tack­led by hench­men Ruben Musa, 51, and Ja­son Smith, 45, who wielded an axe and an­other blade, ju­rors were told.

Alexis re­peat­edly stabbed through his arm and also slashed his legs and face, the court heard.

Ooz­ing blood, the ter­ri­fied Mr Has­san was only re­leased af­ter Mr McGrath begged the at­tack­ers to let them go free.

Alexis, of Ac­ton, west Lon­don; Musa, of Tot­ten­ham, north Lon­don; and Smith, of Not­ting Hill, west Lon­don, all deny wound­ing with in­tent, rob­bery and at­tempted rob­bery.

The trial is con­tin­u­ing.
